Bling comes in all shapes and sizes. So to, unfortunately, do Bluetooth devices. Image the bizarre possibilities if you combine the two. One such possibility is Tokyoflash’s new Bluetooth headset/remote control . It’s all neatly packaged as a neck pendant. How very, very stylish.
It’s not really clear what is the Kisai Escape C. It’s touted as a “personal wireless receiver with headset & headphone profiles.” It allows hands free phone calls, and can be used for VoIP. It will also pair with a Bluetooth capable Mac, PC or MP3 player, where it can be used as a remote control. And, we are told, it “displays the time in a new way.”
There are a stream of specifications that can help make some sense of the Kisai Escape C. It has A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP interfaces. It uses Bluetooth v2.1 +EDR Class 2. It operates on the 2.4GHz frequency. And has a range of about 30 feet. Talk time is up to 6 hours; standby up to 180 hours. It charges through a USB port. And has a 3.5 mm audio jack.
Still, for all that it does, how useful can it be if it’s dangling around your neck? It’s a pity that Tokyoflash didn’t build this functionality into one of the watches it's so famous for.
Slashgear is expecting the Kisai Escape C to be available sometime this quarter, and cost between $150 and $180.
